What makes Skadden Different?

It can be hard to decide where to train. There are numerous strong law firms in Paris, from small boutiques to global, full-service firms, many of which promote themselves in similar ways. But we believe we’re genuinely different at Skadden.

 

Pascal Bine

Partner / Corporate
"There were several reasons for me to switch to Skadden, but one of the firm’s most important qualities is its ability to deal with exceedingly complex situations and consistently come up with innovative and successful solutions. That’s why clients come to us for some of the world’s most high-profile matters, and that’s why working here provides the training and opportunities you can’t find elsewhere."

Margaux Lizé

Associate / Tax
"I believe Skadden offers junior associates unparalleled training and the chance to add value from Day One. When I started here, I knew I’d get the chance to work with some of the best lawyers in the city, and I soon saw that they were invested in helping me fully develop my potential."
 

Eugénie Clausier

Associate / Corporate
"As a trainee and now a junior associate, I’ve regularly worked on complex and interesting transactions in the M&A arena. Skadden is frequently involved in major legal innovations in the French market — it’s exciting and inspiring to be at the forefront of the market, working on the kinds of creative and groundbreaking solutions that win awards and receive media attention. I’m learning every day from mentors who are recognized as the best in the business."

Arash Attar Rezvani

Partner / Corporate
"What else makes us stand apart at Skadden? To name only a few things: We’re not interested in a quick hit or a fast buck. We’re in for the long run. We become our clients’ trusted advisers, the ones they turn to when things heat up or when they face a delicate situation. We have business-oriented minds and think strategically about their problems. We combine the knowledge of the law with an understanding of what matters to them, and what does not. In Paris, specifically, we are known for a “commando” attitude — we work in tight teams of lawyers and get things done. To me, Skadden offers a unique opportunity to start or build a career and carve one’s path in a truly meritocratic environment."

Margot Seve

Associate / Financial Institutions Regulation and Enforcement
"I had trained at other firms, but from the time of my first interview with Skadden, I immediately could see what set it apart. Of all the attorneys I met throughout the process, no two were alike — they all had different backgrounds, nationalities and interests."
